About the Journal
Historical Insight and Research [IJHIR] ISSN:2454-5600 is a double blind refereed international history Quarterly e-journal that aims to publish research papers and articles augmenting the knowledge and new perspectives leading to furtherance of research in manifold aspects of international history. The Journal invites papers from all fields of history in particular political, economic, social, religious, environmental, cultural aspects which influence the contemporary global man and society. E. H. Carr has rightly said, History is a continuous process of interaction between historian and his facts, an unending dialogue between present and the past.

Peer Review and Publication Policy
The journal employs the double-blind peer review process, where both reviewers and authors remain anonymous throughout the review process.
Every proposal submitted for publication is read at least by an editor, for an initial review. If the paper agrees with editorial policies and with a minimum quality level, is sent to two reviewers. The reviewers won't know the author's identity, as any identifying information will be stripped from the document before review.
Reviewers' comments to the editors are confidential and before passing on to the author will made anonymous. Based on the reviewers' comments, the Editorial Board makes a final decision on the acceptability of the manuscript, and communicates to the authors the decision, along with referees' reports. Whether significant revisions are proposed, acceptance is dependent on whether the author can deal with those satisfactorily. Only those papers approved by the reviewers will be selected for publication.
Ethical Responsibilities of Authors
Authors should refrain from misrepresenting research results which coulddamage the trust in the journal, the professionalism of scientific authorship,and ultimately the entire scientific endeavour. Maintaining integrity of theresearch and its presentation can be achieved by following the rules of goodscientific practice, which include:
- The manuscript has not been submitted to more than one journal for simultaneous consideration.
- The manuscript has not beenpublished previously (partly or in full), unless the new work concerns anexpansion of previous work (please provide transparency on the re-use ofmaterial to avoid the hint of text-recycling (“self-plagiarism”)).
- A single study is not split upinto several parts to increase the quantity of submissions and submitted tovarious journals or to one journal over time (e.g. “salami-publishing”).
- No data have been fabricatedor manipulated (including images) to support your conclusions
- No data, text, or theories byothers are presented as if they were the author’s own (“plagiarism”). Properacknowledgements to other works must be given (this includes material that isclosely copied (near verbatim), summarized and/or paraphrased), quotation marksare used for verbatim copying of material, and permissions are secured for material that is copyrighted.
- Important note: the journal may use software to screen for plagiarism.
- Consent tosubmit has been received explicitly from all co-authors, as well as from theresponsible authorities - tacitly or explicitly - at the institute/organizationwhere the work has been carried out, before the work issubmitted.
- Authors whose names appear onthe submission have contributed sufficiently to the scientific work andtherefore share collective responsibility and accountability for the results.
- Authors arestrongly advised to ensure the correct author group, corresponding author, andorder of authors at submission. Changes of authorship or in the order ofauthors are notaccepted after acceptance of amanuscript.
- Adding and/ordeleting authors and/or changing the order of authors at revision stage maybe justifiably warranted. A letter must accompany the revised manuscript toexplain the reason for the change(s) and the contribution role(s) of the addedand/or deleted author(s). Further documentation may be required to support yourrequest.
- Requests for addition orremoval of authors as a result of authorship disputes after acceptance are honored after formal notification by the institute or independent body and/or when there is agreement between all authors.
- Upon request authors should be prepared to send relevant documentation or data in order to verify the validity of the results. This could be in the form of raw data, samples, records, etc.Sensitive information in the form of confidential proprietary data is excluded.
Ethical Responsibilities of Reviewers
Peer reviewers play a role in ensuring the integrity of the scholarly record. The peer review process depends to a large extent on the trust and willing participation of the scholarly community and requires that everyone involved behaves responsibly and ethically. Peer reviewers play a central and critical part in the peer review process, but may come to the role without any guidance and be unaware of their ethical obligations. Journals have an obligation to provide transparent policies for peer review, and reviewers have an obligation to conduct reviews in an ethical and accountable manner. Clear communication between the journal and the reviewers is essential to facilitate consistent, fair and timely review.
